Coming on May 3rd--Fourth and Goal--from Loose Id

In a game played on and off the field, only one of them will emerge the winner.

Armed with an uncanny ability for evaluating football talent, a dogged determination to succeed in a man’s world, and an empty bank account, Rachel McCormick agrees to help struggling wide receiver Derek Ramsey get his game back. Rachel believes Derek, her former best friend and lover, knows the truth behind a points-shaving scandal which ruined her father. She vows to expose the secret even if it destroys Derek in the process.

When Derek’s coach suggests sex as an excellent tension reliever the night before a game, Rachel takes one for the team. The next day, Derek has the best performance of his not-so lustrous pro football career. As Derek and Rachel rack up nights in bed and other places, the team racks up wins on the field. Rachel is torn between her loyalty to her father and her growing affection for Derek. Now it’s fourth and goal, one second left on the clock. Their hearts are on the line. Do they trust each other enough to go for the long bomb or do they get dropped for a loss?

Reading and Teenagers

I heard this on the radio last week:

Teenagers who read at least one book a month are much more likely to have rewarding careers in their early 30s. I can't remember the percentage, but it was high, something like 30 to 50 percent.

Here's the kicker: The study also found that it didn't matter what they read. Only that they read.

So for all those people out there who turn their noses up at romance novel readers or consider romance garbage, keep this in mind: reading is what's important. Not what you read. Reading romances can be just as important to your future as reading a literary novel or a non-fiction book.
